SIT DOWN, "Bachelorette" fans, and remember to breathe.

Life & Style is reporting that the Josh Murray bloom is off Andi Dorfman's rose.

"Josh can be controlling and jealous," an unnamed insider revealed exclusively to Life & Style. "He's very insecure about the relationship, and even more so after watching everything unfold on TV and seeing Andi tell other guys she's in love with them."

And we all know what she did with that gossip Nick Viall.

Andi is "a fiercely independent person and loves going out with her friends," the insider said, and Josh, to paraphrase, is clingy. "At first, she thought his jealousy was cute, but now that they're not hiding their relationship, he's jealous all the time and I'm not sure how cute she's finding it."

* Meanwhile, in "Bachelor" news, a sharply divided Santa Fe City Council has voted to spend up to $100,000 to try to lure the show to New Mexico.

Councilors approved by a 5-4 vote on Wednesday a funding request from the Convention and Visitors Bureau to try to get the ABC dating show to film an episode in Santa Fe.

Supporters say Santa Fe could use a tourism boost and the filming could showcase some of the city's attractions.

But Councilor Bill Dimas says the show is awful and having it set in a city wouldn't encourage him to visit.



Alicia Keys is pregnant with her second child.

Keys posted a photo with her baby bump on Instagram early yesterday, which also marked her fourth wedding anniversary to producer-rapper Swizz Beatz, who also posed in the picture.

Keys wrote that their anniversary was sweeter because they've "been blessed with another angel on the way."

Awwwww . . .

She gave birth to son Egypt in 2010.

* The NBA's first female referee, Violet Palmer, will marry her partner of 20 years, celebrity hairstylist Tanya Stine, today in L.A.

The ceremony will be officiated by "Basketball Wives LA" star Tanya Young Williams, the ex-wife of former NBA All-Star Jayson Williams.

Palmer and Stine always joked they would marry if they celebrated 20 years together. Once gay marriage was legalized in California the couple realized it was time to get hitched. They'll wed in front of about 130 guests, including several of Palmer's fellow NBA referees.

After the wedding, the pair will be called for traveling.

* A horse-racing tweet prompted prosecutors to halt a court hearing at which a lawyer for former teen heartthrob David Cassidy was supposed to accept a plea deal on the singer's behalf.

Cassidy was charged last summer with driving while intoxicated in the town of Schodack, near Albany, N.Y. Because he lives in Florida, prosecutors agreed to let his lawyer appear in court for him Wednesday.

But a tweet by the New York Racing Association said Cassidy was at Saratoga Race Course, 40 miles north of Schodack.

A prosecutor told the Schenectady Daily Gazette that officials were "disturbed" to learn Cassidy was nearby but apparently unable to appear. Cassidy's lawyer said his client may not have known the timing of his court date.

Or he had big money on long shot Coast of Sangria to win in the sixth.

* Reuters reports that Paramount Pictures and producer Michael Bay ("Armageddon," "Transformers") have extended his first-look agreement with the studio by three years.

So if you like loud movies in which lots of stuff blows up, your prayers have been answered.

Ne-Yo wants $8 million from his ex-manager Kevin Foster.

So sings the New York Daily News.

Foster started handling Ne-Yo's finances in 2005.

The suit says Foster moved some of Ne-Yo's money without permission, faked Ne-Yo's name on loan documents and invested Ne-Yo's money in a water company teetering on the edge of bankruptcy.

The suit seeks $4.5 million plus $3.5 million in fees that Ne-Yo says he paid Foster.

The Daily News said a phone number for Foster's firm was out of service.

Guess he didn't invest any of that money in the bill.

* A labor dispute could shut down New York's world famous Metropolitan Opera.

In a cliche that is finally a truism, the dispute won't be over until the fat lady sings.

(Although, in fairness, even the fat lady is rather svelte these days.)
